Traffic

Who gave these people permission to drive on my road anyway, they ruined a perfectly good photo. This is a spot in the road where I like to stop and take a photo of the empty road and the surrounding fields.


 If I really zoom in with the camera it looks like this road is part roller-coaster. It used to be worse..small children who were inclined to be car sick would sometimes feel their tummies being tickled by the road..I believe it was Tami who came up with that saying..a long time ago, and now my Grand-girls use the same tummy tickling to describe the ride ..except some of them request "Drive really fast Grandma."

This road is in the opening chapters of Red Earth, White Earth, since I didn't see the movie I don't know if it was depicted correctly in the film or not.
For me it is just the road home, away from traffic, even if it is only a car or two, most people who I know anyway..who wave and smile, so I wave and smile back through clenched teeth..I like having the road all to myself:)

  5. Your road reminds me of that hard ribbon candy. I bet it sure can be a tummy tickler! There was a day I could drive into Tiny Town and back and not meet or even see another car on the road I traveled. Hummm, times...they are a'changin'.

    Enjoy your day sweetie!!!

  8. "Thrill Hills" made the bus ride home from school more fun; especially, when we could persuade the driver to go just a bit faster than usual.

  10. I can just picture myself in an open convertible top car speeding along that roller coaster road - well, with your permission of course. Looks like it would be a fun drive.

  13. With that second photograph you want to take the road in your hands and give it a shake to straighten it out like a crumpled rug.

  15. I feel your pain. We live in a small town, and if there is more than one person at the gas station I will wait to go back when it isn't so busy!
